|KARLSRUHE, August 3, 2013 / in70mm.com news. We have launched the 9th instalment of the “Todd-AO 70mm Festival“ to be held from 20 - 22 September 2013 at the Schauburg in Karlsruhe, Germany. For three days in September Filmtheater Schauburg celebrates the world of LARGE FORMAT film, by offering a series of epic films in 70mm - the HD of film formats. Some films are in their original versions and some "70mm Vintage Classics", are dubbed into German.|
Once again spectacular large format process names like CINERAMA, Super Technirama 70, DEFA70, Todd-AO, Panavision 70 and Super Panavision 70 will light up on the large 18 meter curved Cinerama screen.
Let us hope, that the splendour of 70mm not only serves our nostalgic dreams, but also offers the chance for a young audience to experience a historic and magic landmark of cinema. Join us and be part of this unique event and share the excitement together with visitors from all around the world - including Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Germany, Denmark, England, USA and France - and hopefully many more.

Filmtheater Schauburg & Why is 70mm so special?
|Filmtheater Schauburg's projectionist Marcus Vetter. Image by Thomas Hauerslev|
One of very few original cinemas, still equipped with 70mm projectors. The huge screen is wide, curved and covered by a "Cinerama red" curtain. It’s the perfect framework to present 70mm with 6-track sound in Super Technirama 70, DEFA 70, Todd-AO and Ultra Panavision 70.
"in 70mm" is unlike anything you have ever seen - a High Definition movie experience with extremely sharp images and crystal clear 6 track stereo.
"in 70mm" is very realistic, almost three dimensional and can make everything you have ever seen pale into insignificance. But don't take our word for it - come and see for your self.
